1. REALITY GETS A BAD RAP. And I’m working to set the record straight. At the Institute for Reality Studies (www.realitystudies.com) we offer a fact-based practical approach to living in the real world without using old superstitious, supernatural, or theoretical paradigms of thought. We instruct individuals, companies and organizations how to be realists and we have an array of curriculums from short term consulting to post graduate degree programs.
